Season 2 of The Boys is as gory as one would anticipate, however there’s one factor that’s been maintaining viewers on edge and it’s not Homelander.
Tense scenes the place it seems like somebody goes to get burned, gored, or killed in an absurdly violent method have been made bloodier with exploding heads. It occurred early within the season with Agent Susan Raynor, and that incident freaked out Hughie, Frenchie, and Mother’s Milk together with the remainder of us.
Then got here bloodbath in episode 7. But who’s inflicting this mayhem? Fans have two guesses and so they appear legit.
[Spoiler Alert: The article contains spoilers from episode 7 of The Boys Season 2]
Suspect 1: Stan Edgar
There’s a phase of Redditors who imagine Stan Edgar holds the facility to burst heads. He’s not intimidated by Homelander and for some motive, not one of the Supes have tried to take him out or seize management over Vought — but. Does he have a tool, energy, or secret weapon that retains everybody in examine?
It’s attainable he’s a supe too with compound-V working via his system. Fans identified that he wasn’t on the listening to with the congresswoman and it regarded like all Vought detractors (even random individuals) had their heads popped. Further, if he has eyes and ears in every single place, the power to clip Raynor is smart too.
One Redditor wrote, “Good point. That might also explain why black noir was so quick to listen up when Edgar was on the phone with him while he was trying to kill mm, hugh, and butcher. Anyone would be scared of someone with that power. Even the seven.”

Suspect 2: Alastair the church chief
So many issues stay to be seen concerning the Church of the Collective. It’s clear Alastair is pro-Supe and the best way he flipped on Eagle the Archer proves he doesn’t have an issue eliminating anybody who deviates from his or the church’s agenda.
Notice how Shockwave was one of many casualties within the blood tub on the finish of episode 7. Alastair wished him out of the best way to make room for A-Train’s return to the Seven and he was the one supe at that listening to who acquired popped. He additionally had a gathering lined up with Edgar to get A-Train and Deep again on the crew.
Some followers assume the church is in on a grand scheme with Edgar and so they’re working collectively, whereas others assume the Collective is working alone. Because this present is filled with surprises that aren’t discovered within the comics, it’s attainable Alastair is linked to this scary head-bursting energy.
Wildcard guess is the lady from the lab: Cindy
There’s the younger girl (Cindy) who reminds individuals of Eleven from Stranger Things. At the tip of episode 6, she’d escaped from the Sage Grove facility and stole a trip to who is aware of the place.
Some assume it may very well be her going round inflicting telepathic injury with the chance they did a check run on her energy on Raynor.
Cindy is sort of able to combusting individuals, however is she actually accountable for this strategic courtroom assault? She didn’t hurt Stormfront within the fracas, and that’s the supe who damage her on the lab.
Maybe she’s doing it, however it’s more likely to be somebody with an analogous energy. Watch The Boys every Friday on Amazon.
